Road biking the length of the Alpine Arc

From Trieste to Menton, the full traverse of the Alpine Arc involves riding some 2150 kilometres, ascending around sixty mountain passes and over 54000 metres of climbing. An epic mountain challenge, shared here through a long photographic voyage from East to West, then from North to South: over 80 images, from Slovenia to the Mediterranean Sea!
